Côtes du Rhône Red

"Vallis", from the Latin "valley", the heart of our vineyard, the cradle of our Winery. Providential sedimentary basin, shaped by the majestic Rhône over millions of years. It is the richness of our terroir and our wines.

description_recompenses
The vintage 2021 has had its share of climatic events such as: frost, rain – too much or not enough – and lack of sunshine. An eventful vintage, but one which had some nice surprises for us, with a lower than expected drop in volumes, a good balance and well-controlled degrees.

Cépages: 

50% Grenache
40% Syrah
10% Mourvèdre

Terroir: 

The vines of Grenache and Mourvèdre evolve on soils of clay and limestone chips.
The Syrah, meanwhile, comes from a limestone soil covered with silica.

Vinification: 

The various grapes are vinified individually so that they fully express their own charcteristics. The fermentation lasts 3 to 4 weeks depending on the grape variety. The wines are racked before the start of the malolactic fermentation. The grapes are finally blended and aged for 8 months in oak barrels.
14% alc./vol.

Note de dégustation: 

Shiny colour with purple reflections.
The nose reveals delicious aromas of ripe lack fruits together with a sunny touch of spices.
In the mouth, a round fruit dominates. Aging in barrels brigns full ness, complexity and delicate toasted notes.

Service & accords: 

Open in advance and serve around 13 – 15° C
This wine can be enjoyed with grilled meats such as matured prime rib of beef, cooked vegetables or mature cheeses such as Comté of 18 to 24 months.

Our "coats of arms", like our wines, reflect our deep values of respect and sharing.
